Awful film, and acting so don't bother.
I mean a Tibetan servant yet the ceremony more like voodoo, including an African/West Indian playing the congas and bongos at the "ceremonies"
What a mish mash.

"The Devil’s Hand” is a slick little B-film that moves at an amazingly fast clip. Don’t look for deep characterizations, or explorations of motives, or anything else that would make the story stumble.

This flick takes itself seriously. It’s established at the outset that the Gamba cult is real, and several scenes indicate that it has actual power. And there’s never a nudge or wink from any of the characters to indicate otherwise.

The acting may not be top-notch, but it’s credible enough. The opening theme is quite cool, too, and would be a good addition to a surf rock collection; unfortunately, it’s never identified.

And the overall theme is still relevant today—how easy it can be to get sucked into a cult (religious, political, philosophical—take your pick) because of one’s hopes of improving his lot. Look at the worshipers; by and large they look just like you’n’me. No wild-eyed zealots, no borderline personalities, just…ordinary people.

My only real quibble is the casting of Neil Hamilton as the villain. He seems to have been rather a one-note talent; his demeanor throughout the movie, whether fronting the doll shop or presiding over potential human sacrifice, is rather bland. Or maybe I just can’t accept Commissioner Gordon being on the wrong side of the law!

Soft-headed Rick is lured into an African or Caribbean style satanic cult, who have a Hindu statue in their temple for some reason, by a seductress, his fiancée becoming a victim of their voodoo. Rick's guilt over his fiancée conflicts with his new beliefs and happiness, and this eventually leads to an outer climatic conflict with the cult. Who would have guessed?

There was a hint that a different, possibly more interesting ending might be coming, but the filmmakers decided to go the tired cleansed-by-fire route. They even tacked on an or is it?

I downloaded the 690MB DivX file. Video and audio quality were fine. There are small gaps in the audio, but they don't interfere with following the story.
